Family Leave

Specialist legal advice on family leave entitlements and resolving disputes

For employees with new family responsibilities, such as having a baby or caring for an elderly parent, there are various types of family-related leave available.

We provide comprehensive support to employees on all aspects of their rights to paid and unpaid leave.

Although certain types of family leave are mandated by law, navigating through notice periods, length of service requirements and the terms of your employment contract can sometimes be challenging.

Whatever your needs, our expert team of employment solicitors can help you to understand your rights and address any potential issues with your employer’s approach.

We can also help you if you find yourself at risk of redundancy during or shortly after a period of family leave or if you have concerns about your workplace after returning.

To discuss your circumstances and receive personalised guidance, please contact one of our offices in St Albans, Harpenden or Luton.
